Enjoying a sought-after, central location in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic Old Town, this contemporary one-bedroom flat is set on the second floor of a stone-fronted, crowstepped building, within strolling distance of the city centre, the bustling Grassmarket, and Edinburgh University, and close to the scenic open green space of The Meadows. Boasting ultra-modern design, desirable open-plan living space and impeccable presentation, this stylish, conveniently-located home represents a fabulous proposition for first-time buyers, city professionals, and rental investors alike.
Approached via a secure shared entrance and a stairwell to the second floor, the flat’s front door opens into an entrance hall (with storage) defined by crisp-white walls and handsome timber-effect flooring: an engaging combination of décor which sets the scene for the impeccable finish and airy interiors to follow. To the left of the hall, the open-plan living space is filled with natural light from an enviably southwest-facing window, perfectly enhanced by its light, neutral backdrop and presented with a chic, minimalist design. Versatile floorspace provides scope for a variety of furniture configurations, promising a comfortable setting for everyday living and relaxation along with a seated dining area for socialising and entertaining. The convivial open flow continues towards a contemporary kitchen, cleverly fitted to the contours of the room and heightening the sense of space with a range of gloss-white base and wall cabinets. Stylishly enhanced by timber-effect worktops and on-trend, coloured splashback panels, the streamlined design incorporates a full complement of integrated appliances, including an oven, a ceramic hob, a fridge, and a washing machine. Also located in the flat, a double bedroom enjoys a similar sunny outlook and echoes the understated décor and styling of the living accommodation. Completing the accommodation, a bright, modern shower room enjoys a deluxe walk-in shower, a WC and a basin set into storage, all set against a backdrop of neutrally-toned stone-effect tiling. Electric heating and double glazing ensure year-round comfort and efficiency.
Externally, the home is within strolling distance of the scenic open parkland of The Meadows, whilst controlled parking is available in the area with a residents’ permit (Zone 4).

Offering some of the finest amenities that Edinburgh has to offer, the Grassmarket is situated in the heart of the capital’s Old Town, a renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site. Overlooked by the impressive Edinburgh Castle, the Grassmarket has in recent years become a highly sought-after area; home to a vibrant and eclectic array of eateries, traditional pubs, award-winning restaurants, independent retailers, an art gallery and a selection of hotels. Every Saturday, the Grassmarket is transformed into a hive of activity thanks to the Grassmarket Market, offering delightful home-grown produce and handcrafted gifts from local craft makers. During the warmer months, the Grassmarket is the perfect place for open-air dining and socialising, giving the area a wonderful continental atmosphere. Edinburgh’s world-class shopping facilities are all enviably close to the Grassmarket, with Princes Street, George Street, and Multrees Walk all within walking distance. Some of the capital’s most loved cultural and entertainment venues are also within easy reach, and outdoor lovers are spoiled for choice thanks to the proximity of Princes Street Gardens, the Meadows and the picturesque Holyrood Park. All of Edinburgh’s highly-regarded universities and colleges are easily accessible from the Grassmarket, and the area is well-served by day and night bus links, whilst Waverley and Haymarket train stations and the tram line are also close by.
